August 27: THE BEAUTIFUL CONVERSATION BETWEEN ST. AUGUSTINE AND HIS MOTHER, ST. MONICA, PRIOR TO HER DEATH.
℟. Our time is growing short. Those who enjoy life should act as though there was nothing to enjoy, and those who deal in worldly things should not become engrossed in them.* I say this because the world as we know it is passing away.
℣. It is not the spirit of the world which we have received.* I say this because the world as we know it is passing away.
